Today on the Rockstar DIY stage is Jaime and she’s back with an encore performance.
Today she’ll be showing us how make this adorable DIY Spider Stool.
I have a spooky little spider project today being that Halloween is on the horizon. I’m Jaime from That’s My Letter and I’ll show you how to build this spider stool.
Add some themed decor to your kids playroom or a great spot to rest the treats near the front door on Halloween. This spider stool is fairly simple to make and although most spiders have eight legs this one only has six.
- 1- 2×12 @ 16″l scrap wood (spider body)
- 2-2x2x6 board (legs)
- measuring tape
- miter saw
- wood glue
- pocket hole jig
- 2 1/2″ pocket hole screws
- 2 – 1″ circular dowel pieces @ 1/2″l (eyes if desired)
- black spray paint
Step 1: Sketch the spider body shape on the 2×12.
Step 2: Use a jigsaw to cut out the spider body. Go very slow through the 1 1/2″ thick material and flip over to refine your cut if necessary.
Step 3: Cut 6 legs with 5 degree bevel at both ends, parallel measuring 17″ from end to end.
Layout the legs on the underside of the body inset 1/2″ from the edge.
Apply wood glue and attach legs using 2 1/2″ pocket hole screws.
Step 4: Sand and finish with black spray paint.
For an extra spooky factor paint 1″ circular dowel pieces bright red and glue on the head portion.
Hope you enjoyed this fun spider stool project!
Now that’s a project worth cheering for! So stinkin’ cute! Let’s give it up for Jaime who is the blogging rock star at That’s My Letter!
